This past week was really great and really sad! I am officially leaving Mabopane. It has been a hard week of goodbyes. On Monday night we did a last family home evening with Gogo and her family. We made dinner for all of them and they loved the brownies we made! While I was sharing the lesson Momma Ponga stopped us and told everyone how she was committing to come to church every week from now on! She hasn't been in 4 years!! On sunday she made it and it was so cool to see her there. She is starting to gain her faith back and is going to continue on! As I said goodbye to that family last night she couldn't stop crying. It was way sad, I will definitely be in touch with them for the rest of my life though.
Some good news is that I have been called to be a Zone Leader. I feel kinda inadequate because I am young on mission, but I know the Lord will help me! So I will be going to a town next transfer. It will be a hard transition but we are going to work hard and get the area where I go booming!
We had Zone conference this past week and talked about being standing ministers for when the new mission President comes in. It is our job to follow in suit and help him in any way he made need. We also talked about the Gathering of Israel! It was a really good discussion.
The baptisms on Sunday went great!! Koketso, Thato, and Joslina all asked me to baptize them and it was such a great experience! I love the true Joy that comes as you see the light on the peoples faces! No greater feeling! Nono sadly didn't pass her interview for some reasons with the Law of Chastity, but we had a good talk with her and she is going to get everything figured out!
I Finished the Book of Mormon again this past week! I am so grateful for the power that it brings into my life! I love learning all I can from it! A few scriptures that I really liked in Moroni were 1:3 which talks about how He WILL NOT deny the Christ!! and 9:6 which talks about how we need to labor diligently! Missionary work is WORK!! We are all called! Let us not cease to labor!
I love you all so much!
